Happy Father’s Day everyone! As you might know, I am a proud stepfather to two wonderful girls, Isabella and Samantha. Despite what my friends told me about parenting teenage girls, it has been a truly wonderful experience! They have given me Father’s Day cards since Carey and I got married. Thanks to all the fathers and stepfathers out there for what you do. As I mentioned last month, I am in the process of interviewing various nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and home healthcare agencies and describing those agencies in our newsletter. This month I interviewed Maribeth Lemon with Interim Healthcare of Zanesville. Interim Healthcare provides personal care and support, home healthcare, and healthcare staffing. During our interview, Maribeth explained the tools they use to assess what level of care people will need. She talks about how home healthcare can be used to allow someone to stay safely at home and still have the care that they need.

The first great American road trip took place in 1903. It was accomplished by automobile enthusiast Horatio Nelson Jackson and former bicycle racer and gasoline engine mechanic Sewall Crocker. They started their trip in San Francisco and intended to finish in New York City; it was a 4,500-mile journey they bet $50 could be accomplished in under 90 days. How It All Started Four days prior to the start of his journey on May 23, Jackson found himself in the middle of an argument in San Francisco’s University Club. The debate was over whether the new automobiles that were steadily appearing in the city were better or worse than horse-drawn carriages. Many of the people involved spoke against the automobile for its unreliability, but Jackson disagreed. Thus the $50 wager was made. Despite the failure of all previous cross- country automobile trips, Jackson was determined to make a successful journey. THE FIRST AUTOMOBILE ROAD TRIP An Adventure From San Francisco to New York

With 22-year-old Crocker at his side, Jackson purchased a used 20-horsepower Winton touring car, which he named Vermont in tribute to his home state, for their epic journey.
